Eric Clapton Rocks St. Louis!
Eric Clapton continued his trek around the U.S. with a stop at the Scottrade Center (formerly the Savvis Center) in St. Louis, Missouri on 18 September 2006. It was the second show of the U.S. Tour and the 41st of Clapton's current world tour that kicked off on 5 May. Fans in attendance reported an amazing show, with Eric and his two guitarists (Doyle Bramhall II and Derek Trucks) trading leads. Radio hits "I Shot The Sheriff" and "Pretending" and "Wonderful Tonight" shared the setlist with classic blues like "Further On Up The Road" and more recent songs like "Back Home." Robert Cray again joined Eric onstage for two numbers.
The full set list was:
I Shot The Sheriff
Got To Get Better In A Little While
Old Love (with Robert Cray)
Everybody Oughta Make A Change
I Am Yours
Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out
Running On Faith After Midnight
Little Queen Of Spades
Further On Up The Road
Crossroads (encore with Robert Cray)
The current leg of the US Tour will visit cities in the eastern half of the country, along with two dates in Canada. Additional US concerts will be announced later.
Fans who checked in with Where's Eric! had this to say in brief:
Wow, what a show! I'm wondering if Eric worked out a deal with Father Time, he's got the energy on stage of someone half his age and is playing fabulously -- Brian Kunz
What can I say, it exceeded my expectations and Wow! what a jam! I have seen Clapton three times and I believe he was better or at least as good as any other time I have seen him, partly because of the great band he had with him. An amazing amount of guitar solos. I was impressed the Eric gave so much time to the others. They all looked like they were having a good time. -- Rick
